Short title

        1. These regulations may be cited as the Newfoundland and Labrador Child Benefit Regulations.

Definitions

        2. In these regulations

             (a)  "Act" means the Income Tax Act; and

             (b)  "NLCB" means the Newfoundland and Labrador child benefit as defined in paragraph 4.6(1)(b) of the Act.

Qualified dependant

        3. A person who is a qualified dependant of an eligible individual on the first day of a month is a qualified dependant of that individual for that month.

Child benefit calculation

        4. The amount of the Newfoundland and Labrador child benefit that applies for a qualified dependant of an eligible individual that is considered to have arisen during a month in relation to which the year is the base taxation year is the amount of NLCB, if it is positive, calculated according to the following formula:

NLCB = 1/12[(A + B+ C +D) -E]

where:

              A  equals $204 for the first qualified dependant;

               B  equals $312 for the second qualified dependant;

               C  equals $336 for the third qualified dependant;

               D  equals $360 times the number of qualified dependants in excess of 3; and

               E  equals the benefit reduction calculated under section 5.

Benefit reduction calculation

        5. Where the adjusted income of an eligible individual for a base taxation year, in relation to a month,

             (a)  is less than or equal to $15,921, the benefit reduction "E" shall equal zero; and

             (b)  is greater than $15,921, the benefit reduction "E" shall be calculated by multiplying the difference between the adjusted income and $15,921 by

                      (i)  4.08% where there is one qualified dependant,

                     (ii)  10.32% where there are 2 qualified dependants,

                    (iii)  17.04%, where there are 3 qualified dependants, and

                    (iv)  the total of 17.04%, and the product obtained by multiplying the number of qualified dependants in excess of 3 by 7.2%.

Commencement

        6. These regulations shall come into force on July 1, 1999.
